Mimi's Place: 'Cracker Barrel' Cheesy Hashbrown Casserole

One if Mimi's favorite things is to find a restaurant dish I love and try to figure out a way to duplicate the taste and texture of that dish in my own kitchen.

In fact, the "Little's" call me "Copycat Mimi" for my ability to find a way to make what I cook taste just like what they serve in restaurants, and this knock-off of Cracker Barrel's Cheesy Hash Brown Casserole in one of my favorites.

It's so good I've been waiting on a cease and desist letter from Cracker Barrel!
